Golden Ticket Awards
Random Golden Ticket drawings will be held throughout the day, starting with an “early bird” drawing at 7:00am for donations scheduled prior to May 1 or donated from midnight to 6:59am on May 1. Hourly drawings will begin at 8:00am for donations made from 7:00-7:59am and end at 10:00pm for donations received from 9:00-9:59pm. The donor who made the donation will be announced and the nonprofit recipient of that donation will be awarded a $1,000 cash prize.
During three special hours of the day, a “5×5” Golden Ticket drawing will occur. Instead of one $1,000 prize, there will be 5 prizes of $500 each. These drawings will be regionally based, with one going to each region (see below for region definitions). The “5×5” drawings will occur at 1:00pm, 6:00pm and 9:00pm, following the 12:00-12:59pm, 5:00-5:59pm and 8:00-8:59pm giving hours. Check the Idaho Gives website for hourly announcements of the winners.
Please note that all times listed for awards are Mountain Daylight Time.
Donor Appreciation Awards
In honor of the thousands of donors who make Idaho Gives a success, a Donor Appreciation Award has been added in 2014. Any size donation can suddenly be worth more to a donor’s chosen nonprofit. Every 500th donation will be boosted by a $250 prize, given to the nonprofit receiving that donation. Prizes will be awarded to the recipient nonprofit of the donor who happens to give the 500th, 1,000th, 1,500th, 2,000th, 2,500th, etc. donation throughout the day. As each donation benchmark is reached, winning nonprofits and the donor who triggered the prize, will be posted on the Idaho Gives website.
